"My reception was awful"

About: Royal Shrewsbury Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

This appointment was an independent referral. When I attended the reception I was soon met by a member of staff.

She was awful - I assume she had her personal opinion about my operation and she made it clear to me.

She soon went to the nurses desk to speak about me - I approached her and asked her what she was doing?

Then she rang my medical provider to talk about my procedure which really annoyed me. She never asked for my permission - again I followed her and asked her to stop! !
